            Welcome to 5th grade! I am so excited about the upcoming school year!  We have an exciting adventure ahead. We will be learning about many interesting topics which you can discover more about by clicking on the subject links, but first let me tell you a little more about myself.
       I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Montevallo in Elementary Education with a middle school endorsement in English in December of 1993.Then I began my teaching career in 1994 in the Jefferson County School system  where I taught for 3 years before coming to Southside Elementary in 1997.  I then completed my Master's degree from Samford University in Elementary Education in 1997. Teaching is a joy to me because I love working with children. I love to see my students get excited about learning because it's contagious!
      I have been happily married to Jeff Lankford for 23 years, and we have 2 wonderful children. We are members of Southside Baptist Church. My hobbies include reading, boating, and spending time with my family. I also love Auburn football. War Eagle!
